“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This accommodation had everything from the warm welcome from the owner Theo, to a well equipped beautiful home and boats (inc Kayaks) for free use. Swimming on the secluded beach or rowing to the island is a must. But just lazing about on the veranda or walking along the beach into small town (at low tide) is enough Lots of eating and drinking places or you can take the ferry to one of the first European settlements of Russell. I can't praise this accommodation more highly. The only down side is the very steep drive down to the property. We parked the car and left it until the end of our stay as everywhere was within walking distance.

Room Tip: There are 3 levels, we had the bottom level which had good views, the top level must be even better.

What a beautiful spot!

We have our own private beach, with canoes and fishing rods etc all provided.

Both rooms have their own door and view over the water and you get rocked to sleep by the sound of the waves...

The owner, Theo, was a pleasure to deal with, even went the extra mile for us when one of our party took the key in his pocket away on a boat...

Just be aware of the steep drive. Good for exercising each morning by running up it, wouldn't be good if you had a dodgy car...

Will definitely return, highly recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Bay of Islands Beach House faces the water in Paihia NZ. There are 3 apartments all with fantastic views of the water. Theo, the owner, could not be more helpful. It is a wonderful place and sitting on the decks with a glass of wine is the perfect end to the day. Morning coffee starts you off and Theo will help you plan your day. The grounds are beautiful and the only negative is the very steep, narrow driveway. With a small car you would not have a problem. Wish it was closer to our home as it is a place where you would be very happy for a week or more.

Room Tip: The apartment on the 2nd level would be our choice next time
